Larry Young, a former high-school art teacher from Green Meadow school in Spring Valley New York, will be leading a Week Two (July 15-19) workshop on "Faces – an Artistic Doorway to the Self".
"In this watercolour workshop participants will work with physiognomy and the four temperaments to explore characteristics of the human soul as we experience it here in the physical world. Through this in-depth examination of ourselves and our fellow human beings we hope to achieve glimpses of a higher soul life.
Larry Young is a graphic designer, illustrator, painter, filmmaker and former high school art teacher at Green Meadow Waldorf School.
